It depends on the company and the industry. In a company like Dominos, salary will be in the Opex (since Dominos makes pizzas and labor is a smaller ingredient in making a pizza while compared to the pzza ingredients) and in a company like Infosys some of the salary will be in the COGS (since infosys makes software and to make software the biggest input is labour)
